Liz Myhill is a Scottish artist inspired by the Highlands and Islands. She says: “Beneath the cliffs of Shetland at one of the largest gannet colonies in the UK the sea boils and froths around the rocks as gannets plunge. I was driven to try and understand their environment more fully by getting into the water with them to observe their movements both above and beneath the waves.”
Liz Myhill is a Scottish artist whose observational works are gathered through working ‘en plein air’ directly from life. A deep-rooted connection to her native Isle of Skye and the rugged landscape of the Highlands and Islands continues to shape her life and work, providing a wealth of inspiration. The act of walking, watching and recording, whether fleeting or through lengthy study, allows Liz to forge a connection with her subjects and evoke a sense of place.
